Whenever I think of hats I remember back to the "Go Dogs Go" story that I read as a child. The thing that sticks out in my mind the most is the female poodle asking "And now do you like my hat?" over and over again. The male dog is unimpressed until the very end when she puts on the craziest hat imaginable. Naturally I had to create something with this quote that is forever running in my mind!
This piece is 3x5, an odd size I know but that is the way it worked out. The background is a page from an old book, the girl is free clip art from the web, the hat is from ArtChix Studios. I used a combination of watercolor crayons and watercolors to wash out the background, Micron pens to write with, and watercolor crayons to highlight the roses and doodle with.
